Another crime classic by the bestselling author of Be Cool and Cuba Libre.
Charlie Lawson has the Touch. A former Franciscan monk kicked out of the Order for faith-healing too many of the afflicted, now he finds it hard to be a saint in the city, as his gift attracts a slew of cash-hungry hucksters and a beautiful baton-twirler who wants him to lay his hands on her. This Quill edition features an introduction that appeared only in the hardcover edition, in which Leonard discusses the novel's unusual subject, noting, "I had a good time writing Touch, imagining mystical things happening to an ordinary person in a contemporary setting." Treating a theme that has found new timeliness, Touch is perhaps Leonard's most moving, erotic love story; yet its violent and unexpected climax is pure, suspenseful Leonard.
Touch is sensational suspense from the master of crime fiction, New York Times bestselling author Elmore Leonard.
A Michigan woman was blind and now she can see, after being touched by a young man who calls himself Juvenal. Maybe it was just coincidence, but Bill Hill?who used to run the spectacular Uni-Faith Ministry in Dalton, Georgia, and now sells RVs?can see dollar signs when he looks at this kid with the magic ?touch.?
The trouble is that others see them also, including a wacko fundamentalist fascist with his own private army of the faithful and an assortment of media leeches. But everyone who?s looking to put the touch on the healer is in for a big surprise?because Juvenal?s got a trick or two up his sleeve that nobody sees coming.
